Why Saddle Leather? This is the material Louis Vuitton uses for its bags. The Saddle Leather gives the LC4 mattressa sturdier look and feel which is an interest ingnovelty. Charlotte Perriand adored this material for Its consistency and resistance. It is the first time the mattress of the LC4 discovered in saddle leather in its 80 years old history.
The dark brown headrest is fixed to the chrome frame by bespoke saddle leather belts, made from the same saddle leather batches as the mattress.
The yellow thread is also from the Louis Vuitton supply and it is the same thread used for the stitching of the LV handbags. The yellow thread is used on the natural leather parts.
On the dark brown leather parts a dark brown stitching is used also from the Louis Vuitton supply. The cut edges of the darkbrown color eather are colored in dark brown.
